Signs of a Pool Leak

The most obvious sign of a pool leak is if your pool begins to lose more than a 1/4 of an inch of water a day and won’t stay at the correct level after refilling. A 1/4 of an inch per day or less would be considered reasonable evaporation in Central Florida for the dry season (October through May, depending on current rain levels). Losing more than a quarter inch per day in a pool running with no waterfalls, features, or heaters is considered a leak.

Pool leaks can often go unnoticed, leading to not only wasted water but also potential damage to the pool structure. One common indicator of a pool leak is a sudden increase in water bills without a corresponding increase in water usage. If you notice that your water bills are higher than usual, it might be worth investigating the possibility of a pool leak.

Persistent water chemistry issues – like discoloration and unusual algae growth. If you notice that your pool professionals are having a hard time keeping the chemicals properly balanced, it may be a sign of a pool leak. Having to fill up your pool with fresh water constantly will dilute the chemicals making it hard to to keep them balanced. An imbalanced pool is not only dangerous for swimmers, but it can also damage the foundation of your pool, including the surface and pool equipment.

If you’ve noticed cracked or falling pool tiles, it could be a sign of a pool leak. Damaged tiles can indicate water seepage, which may lead to further issues if left unaddressed. It’s important to promptly inspect and repair any damaged tiles to prevent potential leaks and maintain the integrity of your pool.

If your pool is leaking, you may wonder where the water ends up after it has left the pool. Pool leak water can seep through the grass surrounding areas making your soil or grass soggy. Your deck and patio may sink or lift. Leaks caused by damaged equipment can also result in sprays and drips. You may see this water as stains on the concrete pad. Water may also pool around fixtures or devices.

Leaks don’t merely occur in the pool itself. They can seep through the equipment pad, heater, pump, and valves. This leak usually happens when you turn any of these devices on. Swimming pool equipment can wear out over time due to regular use, environmental factors, and exposure to chemicals. Replacing old or worn-out equipment is important to maintain the safety and functionality of your pool.
